題目: Tiger Moths

One of the most beautiful of the more than 100,000 known species in the order Lepidoptera are the tiger moths, moths known for the striking appeal of their distinctive coloration. This type of moth is covered with highly conspicuous orange-and-black or yellow-and-black patterns of spots and stripes. Such boldly patterned color combinations are commonplace in the animal world, serving the function of forewarning potential predators of unpleasant tastes and smells. This is unquestionably the function served by the striking coloration of the garden tiger moth, which is quite visually attractive but is also poisonous to predators. Certain glands in the garden tiger moth produce strong toxins that circulate throughout the insect's bloodstream, while other glands secret bubbles tha produce a noxious warning smell. The tiger moth, indeed, is a clear example of a concept that many predators intuitively understand, that creatures with the brightest coloration are often the least suitable to eat.

    One of the most beautiful of the more than 100,000 known species in the order Lepidoptera are the tiger moths,虎蛾是十萬種已知鱗翅目最美的生物 moths known for the striking appeal of their distinctive coloration.虎蛾以它身上的特殊顏色突顯的外觀聞名 This type of moth is covered with highly conspicuous orange-and-black or yellow-and-black patterns of spots and stripes虎蛾全身包覆著明顯的橘黑或黄黑色的點狀或條狀的花紋. Such boldly patterned color combinations are commonplace in the animal world這樣大膽紋狀的色彩組合在動物界其實司空見慣, serving the function of forewarning potential predators of unpleasant tastes and smells藉由色彩的功能性來提醒警告其他的掠食者自己不是"那麼好吃". This is unquestionably the function served by the striking coloration of the garden tiger moth花園虎蛾毫無疑問地用上這種突顯的色彩, which is quite visually attractive but is also poisonous to predators不但搶眼而且對掠食者有毒. Certain glands in the garden tiger moth produce strong toxins that circulate throughout the insect's bloodstream花園虎蛾可由固定的線體分泌強烈的毒素在身體內部的血液中循環, while other glands secret bubbles tha produce a noxious warning smell同時其他的腺體秘密的汨出噁心的警告氣味. The tiger moth, indeed, is a clear example of a concept that many predators intuitively understand虎蛾的確是個能夠讓其他的掠食者用膝蓋想也能明白的例子, that creatures with the brightest coloration are often the least suitable to eat就是鮮明的顏色代表好看但是不好吃(少碰為妙).
